Famously loved by grandads and nerds in 90s rom-coms, sweater vests are the fashion trend that none of us saw coming last winter.
But judging by the way knitted vests have taken over the high-street, geography teacher chic is here to stay.
And it’s not just on the high-street that they’re popular — literally everybody’s been spotted wearing them, from Harry Styles to Bella Hadid.
Perfect for layering, they’re the ultimate transitional piece, keeping you toasty all the way though ’til spring.
They’re also super versatile, working just as well in the office as for a casual shopping trip.
They can be worn with a classic button-down shirt, over a turtleneck, or even just on their own.
Choose neutrals for chic look, classic Argyle patterns for a more preppy vibe, or go all-out with quirky patterns.
